Starting with an investment of as simple as just a nice empty room without mirrors, a qualified studio owner with proper knowledge can eventually make as much as US$20,000 a month. This business requires very low investment and does not need expensive high traffic location to operate. Compared to starting a small restaurant which may require up to 50 times more investment cost and 30 times higher monthly operating cost.

A simple business comparison of dance studio and a restaurant
Many untrained and non-certified dance studios cannot survive in the industry just like many restaurants with untrained chef fail. Proper training, knowledge and certification is very important. Aceki provides many supporting products, services and franchises to help you to succeed in your dance venture. You can pick and choose whichever program you prefer.
A franchisee running successful branches can make between US$5,000 to US$20,000 per branch. One can own a few studios if they can manage them well. A franchisee may choose to teach and manage a studio full time or hire staff to teach and manage several studios on a part-time basis. Typically an additional successfully managed branch will make the owner another US$1,000 to US$10,000 every month with the owner only participating in management.

What you need
Aceki Universal Qualifications for Excellence (AUQE) offers one of the most practical certification for today's dance professionals.
There are many dance degree programs offered by universities worldwide but they are mostly developed by academics or dance professional who do not have in-depth knowledge and understanding of the real needs of today's fast changing dance industry and hence their graduates are not equipped with the right skill set to find a successful career upon graduation. Many of these universities are simply not providing their graduates the necessary training required to secure a sustainable career as a dance professional and many dance degree holders cannot get full time employment to their maximum potential.
Aceki being an international dance products manufacturer and solutions provider understands the needs of the industry very well and have tried to use such graduates but find them not up to the mark by today's standards. Many universities offering dance degrees today are more focused on selling the academic aspects of dance for their own profitability than to actually solve the human resource problem faced by the industry. That is why Aceki works with industry professionals to form a certification body called AUQE (Aceki Universal Qualifications for Excellence) to address this issue.
"Aceki has various departments which work to develop with the industry, for the industry on a daily basis, globally."
Aceki welcomes other academic establishments to leverage on Aceki's industry knowledge in developing their dance degree programs.
Aceki currently recognizes AUQE-IHDC to be the preferred certification. All dance professionals working for ACEKI must have the relevant AUQE certification. Aceki recommends all affiliated dance establishments and partners to use the AUQE certification as a mark for employing professionals for their establishment in order to reduce the challenges of working with unqualified personnel.
Dance establishments are strongly encouraged to send their dance professionals and dance graduates through AUQE certification to ensure that they would achieve a competitive edge in meeting current market demands by using one of the best skills training and assessment programmes in the industry today.
